Vendor Spotlight! - Citrus Blossom Soy Candles

Citrus Blossom Soy Candles was created and founded by Sandi Roper in January 2013 but the story actually began a couple months prior.. In November 2012, I left a job with a large corporate company, the economy was down and jobs were not very plentiful.  After a couple of months of not working, mild panic was starting to set in.  I went to bed one night praying for guidance as to what I should do.  When I awoke the next morning the first word in my head was “Candles”.  So I sat down and developed a marketing plan in about fifteen minutes.  A company name, logo and a basic business plan soon followed.  Having never made a candle before, research was extensive and all consuming.  Armed with some knowledge, and more than a little dangerous, I ordered a fifty pound box of soy wax, a couple of sixteen-ounce bottles of fragrance oil, some wicks and glass jars.  Yes, the wax and fragrance oils are offered in smaller sizes but apparently I was going to go big or go home.  Fortunately the candles came out great (whew!). Starting this candle business has been quite an adventure but one that has brought a lot of happiness, which I now get to share with all of you!  Spreading happiness, one candle at a time!          www.citrusblossomcandles.com

Vendor Spotlight - Jade Soap Shop!

Hi, I am Jenny Ho, I am the soap maker and the business owner of Jade Soap Shop. Soap making has been my hobby and habit for years. I use natural ingredients only to make the soap. The soap I handcrafted not only helped soothing my sensitive skin but also improved the skin condition of my husband's body and back. 
More and more demands from friends and family made me think about starting my own soapy business besides managing my busy Mandarin classroom. So I started selling from 2014 in some retail stores and markets in Tampa bay. Each batch of soap I make is uniquely made in small batch. My soap is natural, earthy, organic and also "colorful and interesting".I scent my soap with all natural essential oils and color them with botanical and herbal powders. No artificial materials added in my products. I can proudly claim it 100% natural and JUNK-FREE!
Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you enjoy my creations!
